What Are Some Physical Signs That a Guy Has Fallen in Love?

Individuals eager to know if their affections are returned may find themselves wishing that there were some visually observable way to tell if a guy was in love.

While it may seem that there is no way to glance into your man’s soul, those seeking the signs are in luck as there are some physical manifestations of love.

Tender Touches

One of the easiest, and most obvious, ways to tell if a guy is in love with you is to consider how he touches you.
If his touches are tender and soft, he has likely fallen as head-over-heels for you as you have for him. If, instead, he touches you as he would a friend, giving you a playful shove, he might not be that deeply in love just yet.

Head Tilt

When your guy glances at you, watch the position of his head for a sign of his love level.
As “Cosmopolitan” reports, guys who are in love will often tilt their head when looking at the object of their affection. In doing so, they are subconsciously showing their vulnerability and trying to lure you in.

Eye Contact

If your guy seems unwilling to break your gaze and retains almost constant eye contact with you, he may have already fallen in love.
As “Psychology Today” reports, simple things, like keeping eye contact, can show a guy’s eagerness to remain connected, indicating that he is in love with you.

Slumped Shoulders

Though it may seem counterintuitive, when a guy slumps his shoulders, he may be sending the message that he is in love.
When a man is in love, he may roll his shoulders forward as if preparing to wrap his arms around the girl that he loves, according to “Cosmopolitan. ”

Turned Toward You

The direction your guy faces when talking to you can tell you about how deeply he feels for you.
If, when sitting next to you on the sofa, he sits turned toward you, with his knees pointing to you and his shoulders cocked in your direction, it may be a sign that he is wrapped up in you.
